Richmond Hill Hindu Temple

This Hindu temple, the largest in North America, was built and is operated under the Agama Sastra traditions. The temple was designed by Mr. V. Janakiramana Sthapathi, who hails from the same family of architects that built the famous Big Temple in Tanjavur in South India during the Chola period. Come and explore the fine artwork displayed throughout. (Photography inside forbidden.)
